acne scars?
I have pretty oily skin, and I got rid of a lot of acne, but I still have many scars. Is there a diy mask that could help me out?

Scars as in red barks or pitting?

If the scars are pits it is a possibility they will never go away completely. If it is just discoloration regular exfoliation should help. Use gentle products and be patient. I have the same issues with both pits/scars and discoloration.

Can you ask your dr if hydroquinone would be appropriate?
I'm assuming you've already tried Ambi or other OTC blemish fading creams?

A good quality Vitamin E oil and 10 minutes in the sun after application can fade red marks/scars/wounds but that all depends on how well your skin handles E. Some people love it and use it as a moisturizer and some have reactions. It doesn't take much. Just a little dab would work for all, and pairing with with natural vitamin D from the sun is what works wonders. It's recommended to heal scars after surgery so I do not see why it wouldn't help with an acne marks.

Diluted Apple Cider Vinegar used as a toner really helps heal. Just a drop or two of Organic ACV on a cotton ball with a splash of distilled water, press and hold. Nothing is a miracle worker, but both help.

Do some reading on Lancôme Visonnaire Advanced Skin Corrector Serum. I'm not sure about how it works on oily skin, or how it works in general honestly, but I just watched some great reviews. I have had a sample bottle of it for 5 or 6 months and thought I would check out what it is supposed to do. I have now heard 3 people say that shrinks pores, acne scars, and corrects tone & discoloration of the skin. It is high dollar. $84 and a bottle will only last a couple months if you use it regularly. Your pores go back to a larger size when you stop using it (I think that's because it mainly blur's the appearance like some primers) but it's correction on acne scars/tone and discoloration seem to last.

You can get samples at Lancôme counters and try it out in advance. It's worth a shot if it seems like something you would be interested in.

I've heard good things about exfoliating with baking soda reduces the appearance of acne scars

I used to have really bad acne scars too. I love this face mask

1 heaped tsp of unsweetend plain yogurt
1 flat teaspoon of uncooked oatmeal (crumble a little more with your fingers)

Mix these two together and apply on your face. Let it sit for 20-30 mins then wash off with warm water.

I am currently clearing my acne scars, what I use is SPF during the day, to block the sun rays and can lighten the scars.
Also regular exfoliation, as this gets rid of the layer of skin.
I highly recommend Orange Oil or Lemon Oil to aid the lightening and brightening of your skin.
Also Vitamin C is also great, so get products which are filled with Vitamin C (If in the UK, The Body Shop has a Vitamin C range)
I also noticed that Vitamin E also helps leaps too.

acne scars?
MUAC carries some toners and peels that will help. I just noticed your post said DIY, sorry.

Hi! I had the skin problems with acne several months ago. I was pregnant and it was a result of my hormones' work. Not to harm a baby I decided to look for some natural remedies and found out that simple things can be more effective than expensive creams. So I'd like to share the simple method how to get rid of acne scars
Lemon juice can make your skin lighter, and it's also been proven as a redness reducer when applied to swollen pimples. Another benefit is its use as an acne scar reducer, which works in two ways: You can drink lemon juice to infuse your body with Vitamin C, or you can apply it topically to scars to reduce their visibility.Clean off the scar with water and a soft cloth to remove dirt, dust and oil. Soak a cotton swab with 1 tsp. of lemon juice and dab it onto your pimple scars. The Vitamin C and acid in the lemon juice lighten your skin and infuse it with nutrients, gradually lightening the scar over time. Allow the juice to sit for at least 10 minutes on your face, then rinse with water and pat dry.And repeat it every day till you see result! Hope this advice will be helpful for you! I will be waiting for your results)) Good luck!

I would recommend Physician Skincare's Non Invasive Facelift.

A non-invasive treatment that can remove years off your appearance
Sun exposure, hormonal changes, aging, and repeated facial movements (smiling, frowning, squinting) can impact the skin over time, resulting in wrinkles, loss of facial volume, and a tired, sunken appearance. A Soft Lift addresses all of these concerns without the anaesthesia, discomfort, and extensive recovery time associated with invasive facial surgery.


What does a Soft Lift treatment involve?
The non-surgical facelift, also known as “Soft Lift ™”, combines Botox Cosmetic with dermal fillers to address multiple signs of aging at the same time, for an overall refreshed appearance that is subtle and natural-looking. The treatment is quick, safe and easy, with most patients returning to their normal activities immediately after.

A non-surgical facelift works on two levels. Botox Cosmetic, a purified protein, relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. When injected into these muscles in tiny amounts, it effectively smoothes frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

Dermal fillers are injectable gels that instantly restore facial volume where collagen and hyaluronic acid have been depleted. When used in combination, Botox and dermal fillers create a full facial rejuvenation effect that can remove years from your appearance, with virtually no recovery time.

How long will the results last?
The treatment typically takes less than an hour to perform, and is completed in one session. Our doctors use an individual fine needle for each Botox injection site, and most dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, which minimizes any discomfort. Topical anaesthesia may also be utilized, particularly in more sensitive areas such as the lips.

Results from the fillers are instant as facial volume is restored and will last 6 to 12 months or longer. Botox effects begin to occur within several days, as lines and wrinkles gradually diminish. It’s recommended that Botox treatment be repeated every 3 to 4 months to better maintain the overall result of a non-surgical facelift.

I have this exact issue now. I haven't been getting any new acne (Thank God!) because I've been applying some topical benzoyl peroxide ointment twice per day but now I'm left with unflattering scars. I want to use up my current face wash before I buy anything else. I've read that SheaMoisture African Black Soap helps fade scars. Has anyone tried that?
